We stoped here for a lunch on our day trip from Nungwi, and happy we found this place. Prices much lower than in Nungwi. Service fast. Food was good. There is no alcohol in this restaurant. There is wifi at this place.

I have eaten here many times on different occasions. The food is simple and good for a good price. It caters to different taste buds even if you want to try something local, or you are craving something western.

Lovely Zanzibar pizza (a must try). If you're on a budget in Paje, here and the off-licence up the dirt road beside the 'supermarket' will be your main port's of call. Food preparation can take a while so order in advance
